Thanks to all the DIS'ers that are continuing to keep us up to date. I'm glad to hear everyone is safe and sound this morning. I'm sure it's not a vacation any of you will forget soon!

The metal fence and gate surrounding tennis courts is twisted, bent, and pulled away from asphalt. Very scary stuff.

Some cars damaged in parking lot.

Looks like a twister might've blown through here.
Wow!!

Has anyone heard from Tyler or AspiringCindy?
They are both so kind and helpful on these boards. I pray they and everyone else there are OK.

I went through Hurricanes Erin and Opal in 1995 here in the panhandle of Florida and know how incredibly frightening it can be and what it's like not to have power or water for 5 days in the heat of Summer. You guys hang in there and please be careful. Alot of injuries happen when folks go out to survey the damage.

Please let us know if anyone has heard from any more of our DIS friends.

It is fortunate that the drywall did not give way, letting the storm into the building.
I have seen homes built similarly, no wood or plywood sheathing under the outside siding. From the inside out, drywall, insulation amidst formed sheet metal studs, then the vinyl siding that is all. I thought of them as styrofoam houses.

It is as if a burglar could cut his way into someone's house with a jackknife.

Meanwhile I was told that most of WDW was built quite robust, even the facades used for movie sets such as at MGM Studios.

Single digits to next trip, probably staying off site.

Unhappy We hope everyone is ok

From what we were watching on TV this morning, I guess all of those who are standing toda are pretty lucky! My 7 year old said this morning that he ws wishing that everyone at Disney was ok and that the people in florida should hide in the castle because mickey can protect everyone. He is so sweet
We hope that all of those vacationing are safe and that all of those who travelled with children are not too frightened ! What a scary experience for all! I lived in Florida until 1993, just missing Andrew. The house I lived in was taken by the storm.

I think Group hugs all around today!

Sounds like Disney got hit pretty bad, Our thoughts are with all today. ME DH, 2 DS

Pixie Dust from us to you

I agree. I go to WDW twice a year so it certainly isn't a once in the lifetime trip and I would still be upset if this came along during my vacation.

Has anyone heard how we can make monetary donations? I feel so bad for the people in Florida who have lost their homes. I sit here in my home in New Jersey and realize how blessed I am and really feel the need to help.

thanks.

They are saying to send monetary donations only to red cross - phone number is 1-800-help-now. They are asking for money only - no clothing or furniture.

My thoughts, prayers and pixie dust to all of those in Charley's path from Canada. I hope everyone is OK.

Other then the damage to double tree that I read about anyone know if anything else was damaged??

I have been watching CNN which is the only news we are getting any detailed reports from and they haven't mentioned any particular damage to Disney just mentioned places along the gulf that have been hit.

Again, my thoughts and prayers to you all, keep close to each other and be safe.
